Technology can enhance learning, panelists say

By Patricia McGlamory, San Antonio College Ranger

Three instructors of Internet classes stressed the need to use technology to create the best classroom experience for online students during a virtual distance learning panel discussion. The event was sponsored by the office of technology services and the Teaching With Technology Committee. “I think that what we’re all trying to do is create the best classroom experience for the online student,” mortuary science Professor Francisco E. Solis said. Psychology Professor Pamela Hill and Librarian Celita DeArmond also spoke. Theater Instructor Ronnie Watson moderated the panel. Solis makes his face-to-face lectures and chapter notes available online for his students, allowing him to “bring my class to the student.” Students may not completely comprehend a skill, but they can go online and review the skill over and over, Solis said. It makes a great tool for them to carry around, just to be able to access your lecture.”
